Good question and I am happy to help out here. That, James, is what is known as the "El Grande Straight Line In the Bay". It is a geological formation that appeared soon after Oprah tried water skiing in the bay without her bouyancy suit on. You're welcome.
I am curious about that thing that looks like a big red arrow. It's friggin huge. Is it a big dock for the cruise ships or what? And why is it painted red?
